It’s never to early to promote your Sept. 23 season premiere. NBC has posted a sneak peek at Wentworth Miller’s one-off guest appearance on Law & Order: SVU’s season 11 opener. Miller — dubbed the Ultimate Male Hottie by organized Prison Break fans readers in 2007 — plays Det. Nate Kendal, who saves a rape victim but doesn’t want to babysit her afterward. “Sounds like you already boned me with my captain,” he says to Cragen, after he’s informed that he doesn’t have a choice. Charming! While I would selfishly prefer that Wentworth put his velvety voice to use with a character who doesn’t appear to be a bit of a douche*, the unsettled feeling I experienced watching the scene probably means it’s interesting casting. What do you think?

* Exception: I’m still sad that CBS’ Joan of Arcadia got canceled after setting up Miller as pure, delicious evil who knew how to wear a suit in its season 2 finale.
